Megalthic tomb near Lüneburg in Lower Saxony

Oval barrow containing a neolithic tomb.
Only 5 capstones and tops of some orthostast are visible.
Main part of the tomb is still embedded into the barrow.

Dahlem Steingrab
Dahlem Steingrab submitted by Martin_L : The 10m long chamber viewed from the West. One out of six capstones is robbed (C4 counting from the West). The three western capstones appear to be in situ, while C5 and C6 are slightly out of place. The chamber in general seems well preserved, but still is largely embedded into remains of its eroded barrow. March 2012 (Vote or comment on this photo)
